We are interested in hearing from anyone who was travelling on the highway at the time or any possible witnesses. We are also interested in hearing from anyone who may have information relating to the driver of the vehicle. “The smallest piece of information may be just what the Police need to make a breakthrough and help bring closure for the family. Someone out there holds the key to solving this investigation.”
